Fall Flowers

How quickly time goes, there's a new Challenge over at Crafting for all Seasons, this will be my fourth as a DT member and I have to say I'm having a great time.  The theme this time is Fall Flowers/Pumpkins and we are sponsored by Fred She Said.

We were all able to choose an image each to work with, I chose the gorgeous Colored Fall Flowers Set.  As you will see it contains four flowers: Asters, Black Eye Susan, Sunflower, and Chrysanthemum and you get three versions of each flower (no shadow, blue shadow, warm shadow) in single images, plus three ready-to-print sheets in each of the shadow versions all with a border that fits the paper pricking sheet that is also included.

I loved every one of the images so much that I decided to use them all and make four matching note cards:

I cut them out using my Spellbinders Labels Fifteen die and mounted them on dark green card which I cut by hand.  The paper is from one of my Bearly Mine Designs CDs and this is also mounted onto dark green card.

I then decided to make a matching box to put them in:

The lid of the box is decorated in the same way as the note cards and I lined the box with some dark green tissue paper to match.

I loved working with these images so much that I then went on to make some matching tags:

Again I used the same dark green card as a base and die cut the images using my Cuttlebug Embossed Tags folder, I then added some matching dark green ribbon to finish.

Papers:  Bearly Mine Designs - Designer Extreme
